1. Robert S. Mulliken (Wikipedia). From 1926 to 1928, he taught in the physics department at New York University (NYU). In World War II, from 1942 to 1945, Mulliken directed the Information Office for the University of Chicago's Plutonium project. Afterward, he developed mathematical formulas to enable the progress of the molecular-orbital theory. Mulliken received the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1966 and the Priestley Medal in 1983.

Robert Sanderson Mulliken memorial visible on right side.
His earlier work on isotopes and on diatomic band spectra was followed by theoretical systematization of the electronic states of molecules, mainly in terms of the idea of molecular orbitals. This included work on electronegativities, dipole moments, and valence-state energies. (Submitted on May 23, 2021, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
